  1. the lowest socket the athlon II's supported was AM2+, while the motherboard you have only supports 939, 754, AM2. You best bet is just a athlon 64 x2 6000+

    RAM to Disk and Low available RAM Behaviour

    from their website, Supports Dual Channel DDR4 Two 260 pins SODIMM sockets, support for DDR4 2400/2666MHz (Real operation frequency depends on processor) Expandable up to 32GB, depends on 8GB/16GB SODIMM module You're gonna wanna buy more ram my dude. I don't know how big these videos are but you're gonna want at least 16 if not 32. it is normal behavior however. 8GB isn't enough for your workflow.

    Antivirus recommendation

    Honestly, you're actually safer with an ad blocker, as long as you aren't regularly downloading and running programs all willy nilly like. Windows Defender is actually worth something now, it's better than quite a few free AV's. Malware bytes is a good one, it is pretty good in its area. Not an av but better than most for malware. Back when I did have an AV, it was always a compromised ad that infected me. That was my reason for getting an ad-blocker back in the day not me wanting ad free browsing. I'd get rid of my ad blocker if they kept the ads secure but I'm jaded now.
  4. on intel it is pretty simple, turn voltage to manual and pick a starting point seems like you picked 1.3v, after that start at base clock and boot. if it works, back to uefi. Increase the multiplier by 1 or 2, then repeat until you don't boot and increase voltage by either .05, not .5. and rinse and repeat. there are other settings you can change for more stability but I never overclocked broadwell-e so I'm not sure what they're called in uefi. there are guides on overclock.net, but I'm not sure if haswell or skylake would be more useful because the 6800k was broadwell-e or something? https://www.overclock.net/forum/5-intel-cpus/1570313-skylake-overclocking-guide-statistics.html

    No video signal when playing games

    and you looked under both application and system? That's super baffling, it's rare that an error doesn't end up in there. You said you re-seated the gpu, did you try re-seating the PCI-E power in both the gpu and psu as well? If you've done all that I think the only real thing you can do now is just get a warranty replacement. If event viewer isn't showing an error, the card isn't reporting any fault other than losing display signal. So other than getting a replacement I don't know what to tell you. It should still be under warranty, it's usually 2 or 3 years for nvidia cards. Sorry I don't have anything else, I know how frustrating it can be when there's no fix I had to get a warranty replacement for my 2080Ti over the holidays.

    The best tools to benchmark?

    Lol don't good grief me, you weren't all that specific. I know fraps has a benchmark tool, I'm sure msi afterburner with riva tuner has an option for recording min max and averages I'm not sure the specifics of it though. I'd recommend this route because you can tailor it to your actual use case where synthetic benchmarks will show you results more quickly, they will not be entirely accurate for a real world difference in performance however.

    The best tools to benchmark?

    depends on your reason for benchmarking, are you looking to attempt records? then HWbot has a huge list of synthetics you can participate in. If you're looking for real world performance, you'll need to be a bit more creative and resourceful in finding paths and sections of games to run your own benchmark using a utility to monitor and record your fps min, max, and average. Looking for a specific benchmark to show off ram benchmarking can give you misleading results. You need to find the use case you're looking for, you mentioned fps, and test it without confirmation bias.

    Rainbow 6 High CPU and GPU usage

    A good example of this, is CSGO, the game itself is a GPU bottleneck. My 2080Ti sits at very low utilization and sometimes, doesn't even run at the 3d clock speed even while getting 400+fps. With an 8700k, and a 2080Ti, you shouldn't be starting at low settings, start at max and work your way down until you find what is comfortable.

    Rainbow 6 High CPU and GPU usage

    8700k and 2080ti, is no where close to mid range, you're on the top QT. You seem to be misunderstanding how utilization works. High CPU and GPU usage as long as you aren't getting system hangs are GOOD, it means you're getting the best out of your hardware. CPU Utilization, if it is low, it can be because the GPU is slowing it down, it can't do as much because it keeps waiting on the GPU to finish so it can proceed. GPU Utilization, if it is low it means it is waiting for the CPU to give it instructions. You want both CPU and GPU utilization to be high, it shows you are getting the best out of your setup. by turning the settings up, your GPU util will probably go up, and at a point your CPU util will start to decline. High framerates always equates to more CPU util, such as in csgo where I get 80% or higher cpu and like 20% gpu but I'm getting 400FPS maxed setting. Turn your settings up and stop worrying about utilization. I'll bet you can get close to the same framerate on high settings.

    RTX 2080 XC running hot?

    That sounds to be a bit on the high end actually, EVGA cards usually cool well when cranked up like that. It could either be an airflow issue in your case or a thermal paste issue. Can you try with the side of your case open with the same fan profile and see if it is any different?
  11. He'd only need it when watching youtube videos... So he could always switch back. DNS it self doesn't, but just a different DNS can bypass some firewalls so it can't hurt to try it. I've been doing some digging, and this sophos shit seems to be a pretty advanced firewall compared to what I usually have to deal with. I'm having a hard time finding anyway to bypass it. The fact that netflix isn't blocked but youtube is is pretty weird to me. Have you reached out to staff to ask about why they do this?

    No video signal when playing games

    event viewer logs ALL events, after it happens pay attention to what time it is, after you restart open event viewer and scroll down to the time that it happened.

    No video signal when playing games

    Try to make this happen again pay attention to the exact time it happens, then look in event viewer. Windows Logs > Application, see if its the game or driver will sometimes show up there. If there is nothing look at windows logs > system. You're looking for red marked Errors around the time you lost video.

    Is this rtx 2080 worth getting?

    Nvidia is pretty strict now, you're literally fine buying any 2080 maybe if its a weird chinese brand there might be issues, but any of the big companies you're totally fine with getting.
  15. Have you tried just using a different DNS? Such as 1dot? I don't know if it will help with this issue, but it lets me around the shenanigans at work, so I figured I'd suggest it.
